TUCSON, Ariz. (KOLD News 13) - The number of voters registered in Pima County topped 600,000 this week, exceeding the previous record of almost 550,000 in 2016.

“Early in 2020, there was a big push from various organizations and we processed many new voter registrations,” Pima County Recorder F. Ann Rodriguez said. “We’re still seeing a steady increase in voter registrations online, in person at our office, and through the mail.”

And there is still time to register to vote in the general election. The deadline is Oct. 5.

The easiest way to register is online at www.servicearizona.com.

If you have moved since the last election, or you have any information that needs to be updated, you can also do it through the online service.

“Now is the time to register or update your registration. Do not risk missing the cutoff date,” Rodriguez said. “Complete the registration form now.”

There is still a chance that the county will see more registrations before the deadline. The goal is to exceed 650,000. Voter registration totals are updated every Monday [HERE].
